The plants from Ms Knights’ Biology class are moving to the greenhouse! As part of a biology project in 11th grade the students moved their plants into the greenhouse today. We are all excited to see the outcome of the experiment what makes a plant grow better. Also the way potatoes are cared for. Let’s see if they make it before the summer break!
As an international school, we are happy to incorporate some local German traditions such as that of the obligatory “Schultüte” (school cone) to celebrate starting the 1st Grade. The cone is given to children to make this anxiously awaited first day of school a little sweeter. On Friday, parents whose children go to Grade 1 in August were invited to come in and craft a “Schultüte” together with their child.

A lovely ISR World Cup comes to an end with today’s finals! No matter who the winning team is going to be all the children have already won new friendships across different age groups and genders. Whether by playing or cheering for their favorite team from the side-lines, all the children had lots of fun and we will surely not wait another four years for the next tournament to take place!
Yesterday we celebrated our British/German relationship on the occasion of the Official Birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. On invitation from the British Consul-General Mr. Rafe Courage we had a great opportunity to represent ISR as some of our staff were invited to the celebration.
Thank you all for a grand evening!
You cannot start early enough to take good care of your teeth. Therefore, we invited Dr. Jürgens to ISR to talk about the importance of dental care with our youngest ones. Not only did Dr. Jürgens talk about the importance of brushing your teeth, she also showed how to do this the right way.
Experiments and comedy to make Physics more understandable and very much enjoyable. We invited Dr. Stefan Ott, Physicist to ISR for this very reason. With an entertaining mix of exciting experiments, explanations of the world of physics and a hint of comedy, Dr. Sascha Ott created an outstanding science show!
